>>> let me finish tonight with this. i was at a big city hospital recently, and the issue of gun control, gun safety came up. the doctors said if i wanted to know the impact of guns, he could show me, take me down and show me. gunshot wounds can be truly horrible. the reality justifies the discussion today about the need to try and do something about the proliferation of assault rifles, huge ammo magazines, and the loopholes in the requirement that there be background checks. people have told us of the horrible sight of those young kids up in newtown, connecticut. i personally don't want to be a part of a movement to keep those semiautomatics flying into the hands of all sorts of people today, the hoarders, the survivalists, the criminal and downright nutty. why? because the next mass shooter could well emerge out of this pack. check the shooters of john f. kennedy and gerry ford, who got shot at twice. look at the hen who shot bobby kennedy and malcolm x and george wallace. they all had political motives and had guns, got them easily and put them easily to use. if you're not aga

that are covered, that's all states, municipalities, counties, city governments, in the last ten years there have only been 37 objections. in fact, today chief justice asked the solicitor general in 2005 the year before renewal how many submissions were made of voting changes? 3,700. how many objections were made? just one. the point of that is there is no longer systematic widespread discrimination and the record that congress established did not show that. >> woodruff: sherrilyn? >> that's too narrow a vision of what section 5 does. objections are when the community or jurisdiction proposes a plan, the justice department reviews it and determines that that plan is going to discriminate against minority voters. but there are other things that happen as well. sometimes the jurisdiction submits a plan, the justice department says "we think this plan is problematic, give us more information." and the jurisdiction at that point will decide to withdraw the plan. there are over 800 instances in the period that congress studied in which a jurisdiction did precisely that. >> woodruff: so what about that

for cablevision in a very long time. david, in the meantime, we want to call your attention to vatican city. pope benedict xvi stepping down after nearly eight years as pontiff after unexpectedly announcing his resignation on february 11th for health reasons. you can see him walking down the hall here. he's expected to depart vatican city by helicopter heading to castel gandolfo where he will take up temporary residence until his new residence outside of vatican city is complete. once he steps into the castel gandolfo, the doors will closed and it is complete. >> thousands of people stormed into st. peter's square to watch this happen. they put big screen televisions inside the vatican grounds for the public to watch what is happening. it's hard to get a vantage point of the scale if you've never been there but isn't that just an amazing thing to watch? >> and historic are, given that we haven't seen anything like this in 600 years, right? >> i wasn't there but obviously you were, david. eagerly checking the stocks. >> yes, i was. >> interesting this morning, cardinal dolan of new york was asked
popular. but he does come across sometimes as the ultimate nanny mayor. nanny state nanny city, if you will. i mean remember, he's the guy that said no smoking in the bars and restaurants. no smoke even outside -- have to keep a certain distance away of bars and restaurants. he banned msg. he made the restaurants put their calorie counts on the menus and he's the guy most recently said you can't buy any soda larger than a 16 ounce drink. right? so all of that kind of stuff yeah people say he's kind of gone too far. by the way i think those are all good measures. should the government be doing that? probably but it's still a pain in the ass, let's say. on guns, he has really stood up, tall and straight! i say that for a man who's probably only about five foot tall. he has been great. so he just got tired of the fact -- he's long been a supporter of tough gun control measures and tough gun safety measures. but he got tired of the fact and frustrated when there were so many politicians who might want to do something about gun control but were afraid to because of the nra and the political
, it's not like you're a city or you're a county, or your state government or your household or your business. we budget off of projections in growth. so the task a year or so ago was for a group of six republicans and six democrats to come up with $1.2 trillion. it's beyond belief that that did not occur. so sequester was put in place as a mechanism to ensure that there at least was some slowing of growth. the first seven months of the sequester is the most ham-handed portion of it and it's cut at the p.p.a. level, it's across the board, and focused on two important categories. i agree that it's ham-handed and the only thing worse than sequestration in my opinion would be kicking the can down the road on some much-needed fiscal discipline here in washington. so i hope that would we'll do today is get behind a very thoughtful proposal that would say look, we're still going to reduce spending by this amount, but we're going to give the executive branch, because this first seven months is handled so differently than what happens after that --, after that, by the way, appropriators live
